Week 9 of 12 Week Year

If you’re new to my blog, I’m following the 12 Week Year to achieve my 2021 goals. Its objective is to shorten the year (52 weeks, 365 days) to 12 weeks to be able to do more. At first, you may think it’s counterintuitive, but when you understand the reason, you’ll realize it has a point. Think about Parkinson’s Law: work expands to fill the allotted time. The more time you have to finish a task, the longer it will take you. If you want a detailed explanation of the concept, you can read the full blog post here.

Challenges & Solutions

I noticed that my weekly scorecard is getting lower each week. I haven’t been managing my time well. I work more than 40 hours, get distracted, lose focus, and neglect some of the tasks I should be doing. But I realized that the biggest challenge of all is not having a strong reason to push through with your goals.

Pursuing a goal solely for money is not enough, that’s why I’m quitting one of the goals I listed here. I’ll discuss it in a different post because this post is solely for updates.

Takeaways

The 12 Week Year will work if and only if you stick to your tasks and carefully plan out your goals. Unfortunately, I planned my first 12 Week Year goals but it wasn’t enough, and I still got some things wrong. It’s still okay though, it’s a learning curve.

    Don’t worry too much about being perfect. You’re still making progress! 🙂 I know having a full time job makes everything so much more difficult, especially if you have a long commute or if your job is mentally exhausting. I find myself just waiting for my days off, so that I could finally work on my blog. That’s why I’ve been thinking about cutting my hours this spring. Anyway, good luck on your journey! 🙂
